Cross-Over Block Stitch Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite crochet projects to work on is the humble and sweet baby blanket. Not only are baby blankets adorable, they’re also super quick and easy to make. Also, they mean the world to the parents who receive your beautiful gift and will likely treasure it for years to come. This Cross-Over stitch blanket is super easy to make and like many of my patterns, once you get started, you can practically make it with your eyes closed.

If you haven't done the cross-over stitch before, you may be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to do after you've practiced a row you will have it down pat. It is actually pretty fun! I like the subtle coloring in this baby blanket. It has a vintage look to it because of the dusty rose and mauve tones in it.

This baby blanket looks super easy to make and it is just so darn cute. Handmade gifts for a baby shower present are the most thoughtful gifts you can give or receive. Love the way the stitch patterning looks. The yarn used on the one pictured is a size 5 weight wool yarn. Would wool be too itchy for a baby?

I love the look of this Cross-Over Block Stitch Baby Blanket. The pattern is well written and easy to follow once you understand the stitches used. There is a nice video to help you learn the double crochet cross over stitch. This will be easy to make larger by making multiples of 4, so you don't have to stick with a baby blanket. I love the way my swatch turned out that I'll use as a dish cloth. Now to make a blanket using this interesting stitch pattern. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
